buy that declares its sincere steve. we're focusing on buying at the top. nothing more arrogant than when an insider backs up a truck for his own stock, sitting at a 52-week high. they are saying we know we rock, and we're so confident it will keep going higher, we'll buy stock hand over fist, not waiting for a pullback. buying what looks like to be the high. arrogant, sure, but bankable uverse, and there are notable exceptions occupying the wall of shame. let's assume they know what they are doing. not everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt in this business, and after the financial crisis at the end of 2008, i know a lot of people think ceo execs are fraud, crooks, liars, especially those of you who got burned on lehmann brothers. that's the wrong lesson to draw from the crash. healthy skepticism is one thing. a total unwillingness to believe anything positive is something entirely different. if you are going to own stocks, you need to be willing to extend some measure of trust to those who run the companies. getting their stock to a 52-week high and buying a bunch of shares is

of the point i make in the book the fairest system of them all would be a flat tax, something steve forbes talks about in the 1990s keeps rates low and broadens the base and makes everybody pay their fair share. >> let's go to the book, in fairness, one of the arguments you make is that the president wants to make everybody poor. is that fair? >> well, i don't know if he wants to make everyone poor but -- >> equally poor. >> let me put it like this. a good tax system tries to make poor people rich, it doesn't try to make rich people poor and sometimes i think the president gets that confused. a lot of this talk about raising tax rates. look, we know from history raising tax rates isn't going to raise much revenues. over the last hundred years, i document this in the book, every time we cut tax rates in the 'twen '20s and '60s and '80s we increase revenues. i'm pointing out this isn't an effective way to raise revenues if we are going to do that. >>> understand the concept. do you recognize there are some disparities out of whack at this point. >> what do you mean by disparities? >> economi

not even have a democracy here. host: a viewer on twitter says -- steve in florida, an independent caller. caller: good morning. how are you doing? any other way be anre there will agreement. i watched tom yesterday on c- span2. if any family brand their house all the way the u.s. government ran there's, if we could not print money, we would be in a very bad way. i just think we need to get this deficit under control. those two wars that we have not paid for need to be paid for. you know, it has to be done. if going off the fiscal cliff means that it will be done, so be it. host: other groups are weighing in on these fiscal cliff talks. here is "the new york times" -- in the "financial times" this morning -- roger altman writing today in "the financial times." president obama will be meeting with several governors today at the white house to talk about the fiscal cliff. they will be meeting this morning around 10:00 a.m. eastern time, and then the governors are slated to hold a news conference at around 11:30 a.m. eastern time. go to our website for more details. washington insiders tack
of late senator inouye. this morning's paper. back to your phone calls here. steve in indiana. democratic caller. caller: religion should have nothing to do with politics. if religion -- if you let religion in, then you are going to end up like iran or afghanistan. look at what happens in them countries. they tell you what you can believe and stuff, and that is not the way things should be. host: pensacola, florida. republican caller. caller: in response to an earlier caller about thomas jefferson being a secularist -- he actually was a declared christian. he believed in christian principles. and most of his politics were used in an 1892 court decision, supreme court decision that says 9-0 that this country was founded on christian principles. it didn't mean that it was freedom from religion. it was freedom of religion. we are a christian country. we are not like, as the last caller says, the failed governments of iran and iraq because our religion. those are terrorist religions. ours is based on the love and piece of jesus christ. host: markets from pensacolam fromarcus from pensacola. r
when he got successful he moves all his company over to china, giving chinese people jobs. if steve jobs was born in china he wouldn't even have a garage therefore he wouldn't be able to create the apple computer. so i just think we just don't do enough for the people of this country. and the people who are in position to create jobs and do this do not reinvest in the country. therefore i don't think they should get tax breaks. if you want to give these corporate giants tax breaks then give it to those who want to invest in the country, who want to create jobs here, not overcease, and they think try to think of ways to get their money over there into here lower than say the american businessman paying 35%. guest: i mean, i understand your frustration. i think part of it is that the corporate tax code is a mess. we clearly need to fix it in a way that a lot of the politicians talk about fixing it in a revenue neutral way which doesn't add anything to the deficit discussion. it doesn't help make lowering future deficits any easier. so there are some things we need to change about the
morning, america and steve. this is a great time to be an american. i think we are all looking forward to the new year. i am a loyal but nervous. -- i am a little bit nervous. mitch mcconnell is the key. he can take the president over into the presidency and a came a great man. we need to make sure we let mr. mcconnell know that history is there. i know he has a lot of issues. everyone bacchant e-mail, text -- everyone can e-mail and text and let mr. mcconnell n know. the tea party is off the rail. this will make this country take off. i hope mr. mcconnell sees this. everyone out there, the game has been played. host: thank you for the call. harry is joining us from pittsburgh. caller: this whole thing is ridiculous. i started paying social security and 14. i have quite a bit of money in there. i have made my own way. record, the past money they are asking for, that is mostly white people making that money. they should call it what it is. that is still whitey's money. i wish i was as smart as it then people. a lot of people have called then and have not worked hard. everybody wants the
bipartisan budget in a generation. i want to thank steve latourette and jim cooper for their efforts and leadership on this. i also want to thank congressman quigley to co-sponsor and advance this legislation, which is based on the bipartisan simpson-bowles framework. this budget ultimately failed to pass the house, but i remain proud of our bipartisan effort for which the u.s.a. today called us the brave 38. and i believe this type of thoughtful independent leadership that this is the type of leadership that the 10th district deserves. i also believe that the courage and leadership shown by the house to take on the difficult, but necessary position of reining entitlement spending deserves recognition. we know that medicare stands out as a primary driver of our debt in the future. and unfortunately, this future is not so far off. with one of medicare's key programs scheduled to go bankrupt in the next 10 to 12 years, sustaining the status quo means dramatic cuts down the road on the vulnerable americans who need the program the most, crippling increases to the debt and most likely bo
create strong, vibrant middle class. >> yeah. >> we talked to steve rattner about jobs coming back to america at 14, 15, $16 an hour. we don't celebrate that. i'm glad they're here instead of china, but heck. if we had an economy that would support $30-an-hour jobs, i'd be for that. better than a ceo. you know, destroying a company and then getting a $200 million payout. but that said, what is wrong with a state allowing an american to work where he or she wants to work without having to be compelled to pay union dues? >> well, this state, michigan, was such a part of the core of unionism in this country, the foundation of the united automobile workers which at one point had over 1 million workers in its enrollment is now down to roughly maybe 350,000 workers. the united automobile workers, everybody can own a car in america. the history of unionism has been inextricably linked to the growth of the middle class, as you know, over the last 60 years of american history. the right-to-work legislation that has passed now in 24 states, i don't think you can dem demonstrably prove that i
